A very interesting lesson plan, aptly named; Reaction. As with every language, common factors are that in most there are words, phrases and sounds that we use to connect with an audience and encourage interaction. In this lesson plan, you will react to different situations. As there are multiple ways in which to answer, there is no ideal answer. What is interesting is the way we intonate and use sounds to relate to each situation.
